It costs an average of about $81,000 per year to incarcerate an inmate in prison in California.
Over three-quarters of these costs are for security and inmate health care.
Since 2010-11, the average annual cost has increased by about $32,000 or about 58 percent. This includes an increase of $11,300 for security and $12,200 for inmate health care. Significant drivers of this increase in costs were employee compensation, activation of a new health care facility, and additional prison capacity to reduce prison overcrowding.
